The University of Nebraska–Lincoln seeks faculty applicants for the Big Ten Academic Alliance’s Academic Leadership Program.
Traditionally held in-person on multiple campuses throughout the academic year, events were virtual last year because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
In 2021-22, up to six Academic Leadership Program fellows will attend a program that will begin virtually and end with a planned in-person event at the Big Ten Conference Center in Rosemont, Illinois. They will also participate in conversations on campus throughout the academic year with members of the University of Nebraska–Lincoln leadership team.
Applicants must be available for all scheduled programming, including the alternative dates if the in-person seminar needs to pivot to a full remote program.
“The Academic Leadership Program is a unique opportunity for faculty to learn from leaders across the Big Ten and to form their own network and connections with future leaders at other universities,” said Judy Walker, associate vice chancellor for faculty and academic affairs.
The program is designed to further develop the abilities of participants to be effective academic leaders at all levels of research universities. It is intended to help those considering leadership positions understand the university as a dynamic and inclusive institution, and to help them build awareness of the diverse, complex, and changing landscape of higher education while exploring their role in that landscape.
Those interested in applying should submit a letter of interest, curriculum vitae, and brief letter of support from their department chair or dean to Judy Walker at firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for applications is April 14.
